Your wedding day is honestly the best day of your life. I felt like all my dreams came true the day I married Scott.

From wearing my beautiful wedding dresses, to marrying my husband in such an incredible building and celebrating with all our loved ones, I couldn’t have wished for anything more.

We have just received our wedding pictures back from our photographer Jay Rowden. Jay is an award winning photographer based in London. When we first started looking for wedding photographers I really had no idea where to start. With St Paul’s having such strict rules on their photography it felt very important to us to have someone who had photographed here before and knew the area well.

The two important factors for me on wedding photography is that you like their style in previous work and not to set a tight budget.  I was advised by friends that this is one area you shouldn’t restrict budget on too much because at the end of the day, these photographs are you memories and you want to look back and admire them.

We also chose Jay because he had no restrictions on his time & I just fell in love with his style of work and all his previous photography.  We had him from start to finish which is important as slmost all weddings run over on time so it’s important that you make sure you have your photographer from all the key moments of getting ready to the first dance.

Jay blended into our wedding party and spent the day snapping away… you always worry what you will get back but I have been blown away.

The moment we received our photographs was so wonderful. The day goes so quickly you really want to do it all over again! So to sit down with a glass of champagne and flick through about 1000 photographs was lovely to reflect on an amazing day.

I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite pictures and I want to thank all the suppliers involved in our wedding day who made it absolutely perfect.
